Laptops, Cameras and Calculators, Oh My!

What equipment can you borrow from the library? Are you wondering if there is a Macbook, Chromebook, or GoPro camera available right now? Did you know we lend graphing calculators as well as headphones?

The NEW Equipment Lending LibGuide shows exactly what equipment we have at the Media Deskon the second floor and also what is currently available or checked out.  The platform views well on any mobile device or computer!

books waiting to go back on the shelves

Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

We are so thrilled to have students back on campus.  We missed the energy and excitement you add to the Library!

Just a quick reminder of just a few of the many ways we can serve you this year:

We have SPACES of all kinds for you to work – alone, with a group, on a project, quiet or collaborative.

We can also help you with RESEARCH – stop in at the Research Help Desk or fill out this quick form to connect a librarian!

We offer so much more – stay tuned to hear all about it as the year progresses!

New York Times Academic Pass Renewal

Our license with The New York Times (NYT) requires you to renew your academic pass each year so that the NYT can verify that you still have a valid 1Hope email account.

 

You may not have any idea when your current academic pass expires. That’s okay! Be proactive and proceed to: https://myaccount.nytimes.com/verification/edupass.

 

If you already have an account, please use those credentials to log in:

You may then need to verify your email address before proceeding – NYT will send the verification email to your 1Hope account.

Once you complete the verification and login with your New York Times credentials, you will see a message similar to this below:

If you still have time before your pass expires, you can set a calendar reminder and then renew your pass when the time comes. If that date has already passed, proceed to: http://www.nytimes.com/passes to renew your account.

 

If you don’t already have an academic pass setup, you can read more about Van Wylen Library’s NYT Academic Pass Program and find instructions on getting access at: libguides.hope.edu/NYT
